I just love the smell of malloc() in the morning.

Question compiler? tutorial? book? language? Oo

Your question wasn't clear, but (...)

if you're about to begin programming in linux,
I think you should begin with C.
with C++ you have "Objects" that makes your life easy,
but if you're serious about programming, you should begin
with malloc() instead of new.

for tutorial, i'd recommend you look MIT slides, and then,
if you don't understand something, ask in a forum about
C language.

(I think it's worth you see something about python)

Her's a couple of good C books:
http://users.soe.ucsc.edu/~pohl/abc4.html - a really good tutorial
http://www.amazon.com/Programming-La.../dp/0131101633 - a little terse, but fairly definitive.
http://rute.2038bug.com/index.html.gz - A really good Linux tutoiral; see Chap 22,23,24 for C on Linux
